Wyatt & Eli's Garden update
First off, thanks again for the suggestions in response to my earlier post. We sat down this weekend and worked out what I hope will turn out to be a joint garden of sorts. Having had four children and planting a tree for each in our backyard we did not have a lot of room to work with for Eli's tree. I believe that we have settled on a pee gee hydrangea which we will trim up like a small tree. To me it's just the perfect symbol for El - small and beautiful. It will be planted in an adjoining garden to Wyatt's willow tree. We will remove the circle border around Wyatt's tree and make an oblong border to include both boys' trees but their gardens will be distinctly different. When we have planted Eli's tree and connected the gardens I will then see if I can work in the bridge as I really like that idea and maybe put a small dry creek bed in to make the bridge seem more at home. Alas, today this is only an idea since this weekend, April 30th, we experienced blizzard-like snow which has now melted but left us with early spring temperatures. As soon as spring arrives we will begin work in our gardens!
